Then it hit me during meditation … I have been focusing on abundance and prosperity for ME (and many spiritual abundance teachers instruct in how to earn a 6 digit income or attract everything you want). I realized that throughout life I have had a pattern of defining my world and the universe as one of lack – lack of good people, limited resources and competition to obtain material goods. I essentially acted from the premise that I must be jealous of my time, energy and resources if I wanted to “succeed”.
Somewhere deep down I yearned to be like the few people in my life that truly lived from a place of unattachment – opening their homes, hearts and sharing everything they had. They simply seemed to lack the competitive and isolationist cultural gene. I was too closed off to see that the only difference between them and me was a minor shift in perspective. Now I understand that abundance is an infinite resource that I am here in this world to cultivate for all beings not just myself and my closest loved ones … but then what does that mean??
*comprehending on a spirit level that money and material wealth is cyclical like everything else in this world – by giving I receive
*all beings desire and deserve abundance
*that unconditional love is the purest form of prosperity and thus by being open to give and receive it, I am joining the river of universal abundance
